Surnames: Persson, Pearson, Parson

I`m looking for Nils Persson who was born december 2, 1897 in Långaröd parish in Sweden.He moved to Ystad, Sweden in 1914, became a seaman and left Sweden in 1919. He sent letters to his sister where he mentioned that he worked on ships called S.S. Georgian and possibly S.S Waukegan and S.S Reliance. He worked for United American Line that was based in New York as far as I know. In the letters he mentions that he plans to settle down in Los Angeles. He calls himself Nils L Persson in the letters but he is only called Nils Persson in the Swedish churchbooks. His last name may have been changed to Pearson or Parson in the US. I found a Nils Parson with the same birth date who died in Sacramento, California in 1978 but I have no idear if it´s my Nils.

Would be very grateful for any help!
